Heavy Rain is a gripping psychological thriller filled with countless twists and turns in a gut wrenching search for the Origami Killer. Each player's experiences are based on their own actions as they are faced with various choices and consequences, each of which will lead them on an emotional roller coaster. Players will dive into the minds of the four main characters - an FBI profiler named Norman Jayden, a retired private detective named Scott Shelby, an architect named Ethan Mars, and journalist named Madison Paige - gaining an emotional attachment to their pain, joy and worries. Each decision made will have an impact on how a particular story plays out, and Heavy Rain takes players through more than 60 emotionally powerful scenes that feature contextual actions, realistic visuals, and varying paths that lead to a unique ending.
It's captivating, but the voice acting at times is awful. If you haven't played PS2's "Indigo Prophecy", then I suggest you pick that up, give it a go; and if you enjoy that game-- then it's safe to say you'll enjoy this game even more so. It's a little different as far as traditional game-play goes, meaning the controls are a bit messy. Overall, it's decent story with some excellent action scenes and interactive parts. It's worth a buy, but at a low, reasonable price.
